June 26, 2015 - Canadian hospital William Osler Health System (Osler), based in Ontario, has awarded Siemens Healthcare a Managed Equipment Services (MES) contract worth €110 million (C$154 million). For a contract lifetime of 15 years, Siemens Healthcare will provide Osler's three hospital sites with a comprehensive suite of management services and solutions for the majority of its medical imaging equipment. It is one of the company's largest contract wins in North America to date and the first of this type in Canada.

The MES contract includes the procurement, replacement and maintenance of some 190 vendor-neutral diagnostic imaging equipment items for radiology and cardiology. Among them are ultrasound and X-ray equipment, angiography solutions, computed tomography scanners and magnetic resonance systems, as well as molecular imaging equipment. Within the scope of this contract, Siemens will also offer financing and clinical solutions, professional services, room renovations and training for clinical users, as well as onsite technical support.

Osler is one of Canada's largest community hospitals, serving a population of more than 1.3 million people. It currently has two sites, Etobicoke General Hospital and Brampton Civic Hospital; a third site – Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness – is currently under construction, with substantial completion slated for fall 2016.
